Little guide of Athens

It happens nearly every week: Travelers, friends, customers old and new, conclude their visit to our studio by asking for recommendations. That’s how we came up with the idea to compose a map of our favorite places around the city. Some are well known, others not. In all cases they do worth a visit. You can view the map here.
